Step 1

In a large pot, sauté the diced red onion and minced garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the water, green lentils, and salt to the large pot. Bring to a boil.

Step 3

Cover with lid and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 4

To make the caramelized onions, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over low heat and add the onion slices, stirring occasionally until completely soft, dark brown, and caramelized.

Step 5

NOTE: This will take about 30 minutes. The onions should become very dark and tacky when finished. Stir often to avoid burning.

Step 6

Add the rice, cumin, cinnamon, and bayleaf to the lentils. Stir.

Step 7

Cook covered for about 15 minutes, or until rice is cooked.

Step 8

Serve lentils and rice topped with the caramelized onions, chopped fresh parsley, lemon wedges, and Greek yogurt if desired.
